The next YSU Head Football Coach
« on: January 27, 2020, 03:23:15 PM »
Where do they turn this time.  Hope its not a re-tread from OSU and Tressel days.  So many of them landed MAC jobs and failed miserably. Any idea where they turn now?

 Tressel needs to have a say this time.  Curt Mallory at Indiana State should be on the list.

I would hope that we don't place too much emphasis on "northeastern Ohio" ties.  Tressel grew up in Berea, Heacock in Beloit, Wolford in Brookfield, Pelini in Boardman.  Obviously, only Tressel worked out. 

This is still a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious, talented young coach.  The Watts, a big time weight room (not my opinion...ask the 49er's,) excellent (and compliant) media coverage, enough regional talent (not like the old days but still sufficient.)  And the precedent to go directly to OSU from here.  Great place for a rising coach to give us 3-4 years of winning and reach the big time.

  Wick I agree 100%.  This is a very good job.  Great facilities, winning tradition and strong recruiting base.

I want an offensive coach that can recruit Ohio and Florida.  I know I will get my head beat in but I want Shane Montgomery, or what about Brian Wright.  He just took a D2 gig.

Pretty late to begin a national search for a head coach. Carl has a leg up but I'll ask around and see what I can find.

Thanks chief! Wonder if any of the three names you are hearing are actually interested.

Always a coach Shane fan here. I am concerned about Wright being capable, but I always liked him. He needs some Head-coaching experience for me to feel more comfortable.

Shane did more for the program then most people realize plus he was a very good recruiter. When he left along with Bricillo this program did a 360 degree turn for the worse. The Culture and discipline was simply know more..Shane should be strongly considered if he wants to return

You guys do realize that a$$istant coaches at P5 schools make 2x or even 3x the salary that we can pay our head coach.  It is a different world from the days when we hired Tressel.  Lower your expectations. 

This is exactly why some of us have been harping about the bloated number of athletic administrators and the poor pay for our coaches.  I'm afraid you are about to see the concrete ramifications of this misguided policy.

Your correct wick..Was wanting to throw Zordich in the mix then I found out Michigan's a$$istants are getting paid anywhere from 600,000 to a mill a year

Shane was a disaster as a HC at Miami. The team got worse every single year he was there.
